Paper Diamond has been relatively quiet on the release front during all of 2014, with the exception of a couple singles or remixes. It’s not really surprising, either. Paper Diamond had a huge touring year, visiting nearly every market and region while on support duty as well as throwing a couple headlining shows. That doesn’t mean he hasn’t had a few ideas swimming around though.

He took those ideas back to the studio and came back out with The Rain Drops EP, an eclectic collection of bass-infused beats and warbly rhythms.

“I’ve always liked the idea that anything is possible if you set your mind to it and when doing some research on that concept, I read about people that believed they could control the weather,” says PAPER DIAMOND. “I may not be able to control the weather but I like to think that music can take you to your own world; somewhere that you can control all your surroundings. Sometimes when making or listening back to music, I see images and it translates into my music and visual art.”
